The Problem:
The Great Lakes Mall
 –
a 114-acre site, is largely impervious
 –
 either rooftop or parking lots.This site alone comprises 7% of the impervious surfaces withinthe Newell Creek watershed.Stormwater drainage from thissite is gathered by a series of pipes and catch basins
 –
all of which funnel into one 72-inchdrain pipe.Flooding occurs in an adjacentapartment complex and City
park.
 
Newell Creek is part of theChagrin River watershed
 –
 which is not in compliance with
stream water quality standards.
 
 
The Solution
 A study financed through the Ohio Lake Erie Commission Lake Erie Protection Fund
determined that more than 50% of storm water volume could be handled on the Great
Lakes Mall through absorption into the soil.The proposed solution calls for theinstallation of pervious concrete
‘drainage collars’ around most of the
existing storm drains and catchbasins on the site. This lets thesandy soil underneath absorb rainwater naturally into the water table.
 
The Solution
 Additional work by the project consultants, the Environmental Design Group, also calls
for a ‘Permeable Promenade’ showcasing best practices in green infrastructure to
complement a recent renovation to the main mall entry.
